An Elvis auction took place over the weekend and one of the weirdest pieces of Elvis memorabilia ever was sold for over $72,000. A jar of Elvis’ hair, which was saved by his personal barber, Homer Gilleland, went up for sale. The baseball-sized hairball was one of the most well-documented pieces in the world and had been kept for 20 years. Another specimen of Elvis’ hair was sold in 2002 for $115,120. Other items sold at Kruse GWS Auctions, included Elvis’ Schick electric razor sold for $3,000, the jumpsuit, worn for his landmark performances at Madison Square Garden in 1972, which sold for a record $1,012,500 as well as a racing helmet worn in the film “Viva Las Vegas” ($23,750), his “Frankie & Johnny” tuxedo tailcoat ($75,000), his personal and stage-worn boots ($28,750), sheet music from his ’68 Comeback Special ($15,000) and custom eagle belt ($25,000).
Do you think Buddy Holly’s Hair would go for that here in Lubbock?
